Eccentricities of a Blonde-haired Girl (2009)

Currently active at age 101, the legendary Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira (I'm Going Home, A Talking Picture) continues to deliver wonderfully thoughtful, reflective movies at the rate of one a year, even if their distribution in America remains spotty. Eccentricities of a Blond Hair Girl is my ninth Oliveira, and it's perhaps the sleekest and simplest of all his films, which is not to say that it's a trifle. Even at a pleasant 64 minutes, it savors classical beauties, reaches tremendous depths and comes in with a satisfying bite. read more...

I Lost My Body (2019)

This hand-drawn animated movie from France starts with genuine amazement, suggesting the promise of something we've never seen before. In I Lost My Body, a severed hand frees itself from a refrigerator in what appears to be a lab or a hospital, and with great effort (skittering on its fingertips), it eludes capture and escapes. Then the movie flashes back to the hand's owner, Naoufel (voiced by Hakim Faris) and things grow quite a bit more ordinary and predictable. As an ineffectual pizza delivery man, he falls in love with one of his customers, Gabrielle (voiced by Victoire Du Bois) and then takes a job at a woodshop to be near her. Shy and uncertain, he mostly just stalks her, and builds her an igloo on the roof of the building. The various saws and blades in the woodshop provide a clue as to what will happen to the hand. The animation is quite simple, and even rudimentary at times, which can be both refreshing and disappointing. read more...

My Own Private Idaho (1991)

Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho was my favorite film in 1991. I saw it three times in the theater (easy, given that I worked at a movie theater and could get free passes to it). I was drawn to it perhaps the way earlier audiences might have been drawn to an outlaw film like Rebel Without a Cause. It's a mixed-up grab bag of linear storytelling and experimental techniques, with elements of Shakespeare mashed up against a totally modern story of sexualized teens. River Phoenix gives perhaps the strongest performance of his remarkable, mercurial, and tragically short career as Mike, a narcoleptic street hustler. While servicing a client, he meets Scott Favor (Keanu Reeves), a fellow hustler who belongs to a wealthy family. They begin to hang out together, and with a Falstaff-like figure. They travel, there's a betrayal, a song by the Pogues, and things drift ever onward like a road that goes all the way around the world. It's as touching a portrait of loneliness and need as was ever created in the American independent cinema. read more...

The Flavor of Green Tea over Rice (1952)

The career of the Japanese master filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu is beautifully aligned, not a little because he was born on December 12, 1903 and died exactly sixty years later, on the same date. Mainly, he emerged almost perfectly, making controlled, expertly constructed films, and matured very subtly over the years, making only barely perceptible changes until he achieved something close to grace. The Flavor of Green Tea over Rice (1952) comes at a wonderful middle period, between Late Spring and Tokyo Story, as more questions were being asked and themes became more appealingly layered. read more...

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

One thing that movies do better than any other art form is capture dream logic. And yet very few films and filmmakers have ever been able to do it properly; most resort to using strange imagery like dwarves and fuzzy filters or simply presenting the dream as reality, followed by the dreamer suddenly waking up in bed. read more...
